'Divisive, Dangerous': TX Sheriff Slams Beto O'Rourke for Comments on Police

Ted Cruz Tries to Smear Beto O'Rourke with Barbecued Tofu

"But I'll tell you something, I've been to too many police funerals", Cruz said. "Right now, today, I don't know what happened that evening".

Colbert capped off the interview by showing Willie a series of pictures featuring notable people and asked which he would like light up with. While a Quinnipiac University poll released a day before had Cruz up 54% to 45%.

Cruz's camp responded by arguing that O'Rourke's positions were finally being publicized.

The crowd at SMU seemed evenly split - there were plenty of people in support of Cruz, as evidenced by their polite applause following many of his points.

"Sorry you don't like thoughts and prayers", Mr. Cruz shot back, adding he would pray for anyone at any time.

On Friday, the Cook Political Report dropped a bombshell: they now forecast the Texas Senate race between far-right firebrand Sen.

The series opener takes place at 6 p.m.at Southern Methodist University, with the next two are scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 30 in Houston and Tuesday, Oct. 16, in San Antonio. Ted Cruz and Rep. Beto O'Rourke in Dallas as they tackled numerous topics that included immigration, guns and President Donald Trump.

The incumbent also criticized O'Rourke's past support for legalizing marijuana, evoking his older half-sister, Miriam, who died of a drug overdose. Ted Cruz traded blows in an atmosphere that somehow managed to convey the tight race pollsters say is unfolding and yet steer clear of any mudslinging.

The element that Cruz considers damning is O'Rourke campaigning against police injustice (even a very clear one) before a heavily-black audience. And that's a big deal in a state where a Democrat has not won a statewide election since 1988.

Both candidates tried to don the mantle as a "fighter", although Mr. Cruz warned at the end that should Mr. O'Rourke be elected his causes may not jibe with many Texans.

Robert Francis O'Rourke is running against Sen.

"The challenge for O'Rourke is to show that he is more than just a charisma candidate, that he's more than just a pretty face or an empty suit, that he really does have command of the policy issues", Wilson said.

O'Rourke deadpanned: "True to form".

Cruz was also asked whether Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's accuser could say anything that might make him question his support for the nomination. "And I commend you for fighting for what you believe in". 'I will pray for anyone in harm's way'.

Cruz offered no compromise on hardline immigration measures or gun control, months after a mass shooting at a high school near Houston.

The candidates will also debate on September 30 at the University of Houston and on October 16 in San Antonio.

The moderators wasted no time in getting to the heavy issues, as the first question of the night focused on the future of "Dreamers" in Texas and America. Early voting begins October 22.
